[q-tip]
Question
What is it that everybody has
And some pirates and theives try to take

[Chorus:]
Da booty (and if you is a crook than you takin it)
Da booty (and if you got money you shakin it)
Da booty (come on everybody that's here, that's word
To phife dawg and my man shaheed)

[q-tip]
I give my promise to all yall to keep my s**t hittin
Half of yall claim dog but now a light kitten
Flippin on brothers just like mary lou retton
Get off that a** and see what I'm settin
Born with this inside, you just can't get it
This is the lethal pop and you have no weapon
Who is the native brother who keep asses steppin
Make deep impressions and constantly be reppin

[phife]
When I was young I'd stretch gouch yo
Now I'm on letterman, on the couch yo
The black thing with knives is called the back do
can't we be cool instead of being foul though
Ghetto child dreams of fast cars and fast dollars
Impressions of live sometimes makes ya holler
Scream all that devil s**t and talk like a scholar
You dumb as a doorknob, and why do you bother

[q-tip]
Phife dawg puttin the bite back in yours
Top dog, puttin it up, flick his balls
Mc from now til I get a frown
Shake that a** girl because you world renowned
Wake up, look at the sun, see the sights
Bull duke, youve got to die for your rights
Mcs, yall got to work for the mic
Zombies, do it from dusk to the night

[Chorus:]

[q-tip]
Rock to the beat, yo it's never the same
Good girls usually got good game
Hot cats tearin that a** out the frills
Block a**, you had no skills, that's the reals
Make this money without the friction
Take this honey, there goes your diction
Rappers better retreat, fix your joints
My whole crew got bumps on they points

[phife]
Rumors being spread bout me and my click
We can't rock shows and our rhymes aint shhh
Might notve heard it, or maybe you have
Between me and you, they can kiss my a**
Used to get angry, used to get quite vexed
But say what you may, just cash my check
Cause all I'm ever guilty of is going on tour
Doing shows galore, and bringin it raw

[Chorus:]
